One practice I've followed is to respond to the poems with the least responses, first. Of course, that gives me less opportunity to see and read the ones that many have enjoyed and responded to, so in that respect I may be a loser.
The time I get to spend more time on this forum, most others have gone to sleep...the time zone differences ;o} So when I post my poems, it may be late at night and by morning, they're sinking into the sunrise. Of course, if I respond to other poems at the same time I post, I end up pushing my poems down the board, too. Ah, life, such a conundrum/enigma.
